The Ghana Export Promotion Authority (GEPA) on Wednesday commended Nigeria Government for allowing their products into the country for the Lagos International Trade Fair.
The Deputy Chief Executive Officer of GEPA, Mr Samuel Dentu, gave the commendation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) at the ongoing Lagos International Trade Fair.
The Ghanaian official said that Nigeria border closure almost caused difficulties in bringing exhibition products to the fair but for the timely intervention by relevant Federal Government authorities.
“As a fall out of what is happening with the border closure, we had a bit of issues getting the products coming here for exhibition but we worked with the Nigeria customs and our embassy in Lagos and we were able to get to the fair.
“Nigerian Government has helped us by taking Ghanaians to border to negotiate and our goods were released, this shows that the Government of Nigeria has been magnanimous enough to help us so far.
